Anton Repponen's iOS '86 concept re-imagines the user interface of the ubiquitous smartphone with the iconic look of the first Macintosh.

Imagine if Apple had released the iPhone back in the ’80s? Thanks to a concept by designer, Anton Repponen now you can see what the interface would have looked like.
